Cycling the Berliner Mauerweg (Berlin Wall Path) has been on my To Do List for ages! I finally managed to complete the whole path in a single day and it was well worth it. Starting (and ending) in central Berlin, passing along waterways and along fields – the varied terrain and sights were fantastic. But also a reminder of how West Berlin was surrounded by a huge concrete wall and that many East Berliners risked their lives to cross that border.
A deeper (but brief) look into the history of the infamous Berlin Wall and the dedicated Cycle Route in its shadow. The Berliner Mauerweg is a great way to learn about the recent past and also see how much has changed since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
